This is a lot of highly miscellaneous emails between various LAPD officers and various people at the Hollywood Entertainment District and some others.  Heavily featured are Peter Zarcone, Beatrice Girmala, and Cory Palka.  All of the files with descriptive titles are duplicated among the other files.  Also, we apologize for the blank pages in the numbered files.

These are the majority of the unsealed papers filed in the federal lawsuit Cory Spencer v. Lunada Bay Boys, which is case number 16-cv-02129 in the Central District of California.  The background is well-explained by this article in the LA Times .  Of particular  interest are the twenty declarations by various people who were harassed by multiple generations of the violent surf-gang called the Lunada Bay Boys.

This is a set of documents relating to the Los Angeles Department of Sanitation's protocols for cleaning up homeless encampments.  The most important item is the Standard Operating Procedure for enforcing LAMC 56.11, the law which prohibits the storage of personal property on sidewalks.  The City is presently enjoined by a federal court from enforcing this law on Skid Row, so presumably these immensely detailed procedural guidelines are meant to prevent that from happening in the rest of the...

These are materials responsive to various requests I've made under the California Public Records Act to the Figueroa Corridor BID and the North Hollywood BID.  These are all the records that Aaron Aulenta, executive director of both BIDs, felt needed to be redacted for whatever reasons.  He did this by printing them out and redacting with a marker.  He was kind enough to let me scan them rather than paying him for copies.  Because of the circumstances these are highly varied and not...
